Ok,, I'm making some plans for the Kid's Club to enter the Southern New Mexico State Fair,, hereafter known as SNMSF lol,, It is going to be Sept. 29 - Oct 3, so they really don't have a long time to work on things. One of the kids brought me the handbook today lol!! They are in a hurry! These are the categories they can enter,, I have to narrow them down and come up with things for them to do to enter. I can't find anywhere in there that means quilting,, unless I'm just oblivious and missing it. There is a quilting area for over 19 I found in another section. Do think it would fall under Misc.? I've emailed to find out,, but can you guys give me suggestions for easy sewing they could enter with? I'm thinking aprons, wall hangings, vest, stuff like that? Some want to enter cooking too,,, Sewing and crochet etc. categories they can enter: YOUTH DEPT. K, SECTION IIIHOME ECONOMICSSEWING, NEEDLEWORK, ETC.
